Kitchen Tip : Shrimp Maque Choux


  • 6 Slices Bacon, Diced

  • 1/2 Cup Green Bell Pepper, Finely Chopped

  • 1/2 Cup Yellow Onion, Finely Chopped

  • 1/4 Cup Sherry

  • 4 Cups Fresh Corn Kernels, with Any Milk from the Cobs

  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream

  • 2 Teaspoons Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning

  1. In a large sauté pan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon to a plate lined with a paper towel. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings.
  2. Add peppers and onions to sauté pan and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add sherry and cook until nearly evaporated, scraping up the bits from the bottom of the pan.

  6. Remove pan from heat and serve. Enjoy!
